Regardless of what you might think of the spectacle of a slew of not-so-stock cars turning left and then left again around a large oval track, NASCAR enjoys a huge amount of popularity here in the good ol' United States of America. As such, it comes as little surprise that the racing organization has no trouble at all finding willing and able licensing agreements all over the country.

Two of them, though, recently caught the attention of The Detroit Free Press, and they are just a wee bit off the beaten path for what's supposed to be a high-level racing effort. But whatever... we all want to see clean cars and camping could very well be the ultimate American pastime.

That's right, NASCAR's latest marketing foray will put its logos and probably the likenesses of its biggest stars on camp grounds and car washes. Thirteen such RV Resorts are opening this month, and the organization has plans to launch 40 car wash locations within the next five years. Look for one near you soon... or avoid them like the plague. Whatever works.
